i don't think american elections should be bankrolled by america's most powerful interests. or works by foreign entities. they should be decided by the american people. i would urge democrats and republicans to pass a bill that helps correct it some of these problems. i'm also calling on congress to continue down the path of earmark reform. democrats and republicans. democrats and republicans. you trim some of the spending. you embraced some meaningful change. restoring the public trust demands more. for example, some members of congress post some earmark requests online. tonight i'm calling on congress to publish all earmark requests on a single website before there is a vote so the american people can see how their money is being spent. of course, none of these reforms will even happen if we don't also reform how we work with one another. now, i'm not naive. i never thought that the mere fact of my election would usher in peace and harmony and some post partisan era. i knew both parties that fed divisions deeply entrenched. open some issues, there are simply philosophical

. if democrats didn't share america's economic urgency in my opinion we would deserve to lose more seats. however, that is not the case. when i look at the members of our caucus, i see the urgency every day. in the debate, in the eyes of our members, in their stories about their constituents every weekend. as they talk to them throughout their communities. as we look -- as we took our oaths a year ago, we knew that things weren't right in america. we saw in the lives of millions of americans out of work. and the families forced to leave their homes and the elderly down in the security of their retirement after lives of hard work. we saw it when small businesses laying off workers in the face of falling sales and rising healthcare costs and we knew things were not right when our middle class were running just to standstill for a decade and we knew something wasn't right in a political culture that thrived too long on easy choices. on the philosophy of deficits don't matter. publicly or personally, entitlements, wars and tax cuts for the privileged all paid for with borrowed cash. to be paid back b
for $10 million ahead of what it called america's birth certificate. the math that gave america its name. that $10 million was the most the library had ever spent on anything. it was also almost $2 million more than had recently been paid for an original copy of the declaration of independence, and that kind of caught my attention. i never heard of the map or had seen the map but the library seemed to think it was the most valuable piece and the market even seemed to think it was more than an original copy of the declaration of independence. so, i wanted to find out more and at this point i was thinking maybe i would do an article, short piece for the alana tech. so i did some research and got the basics of the story pretty quickly. early in the 1500's in the eastern part of france in the mountains there was a small group of scholars among them the mapmaker martin and he had come across letters and at least one early sailors chart showing the coastlines of the new world and they decided that what they were reading about and see on the charts was not a part of asia as most people had assu
behind america. but i was very aware from the early stages of this that also the american mind set had changed dramatically and frankly mine had as well, when i talk to other leaders particularly in europe i didn't get the same impression really. and so one thing i was anxious to do because we put together a coalition of afghanistan was to put together a coalition again to deal with saddam hussein and therefore the united nations route was then just important for all sorts of political reasons, legal reasons and so on, it was to do with the internal politics of the u.k.. it was also important to me because i didn't want america to feel that it had no option but to do it on its own. >> are you saying to me that that was the kind of agreed policy with which he went to crawford on the eve of crawford? is that what you intended to achieve at crawford? >> what we intended to achieve was to get a sense from the americans as to what they wanted to do and this would be best done between president bush and myself and really to then get the sense how our own strategy would have to evolve in the

challenges facing america's future. and additional funding is provided by the following supporters -- >>> good evening, welcome to "worldfocus." i'm daljit dhaliwal in new york. the magnitude of the loss of life and devastation from haiti's earthquake became more apparent today as the red cross estimated that 45 to 50,000 people were kied, and a growing international rescue effort struggled to save the injured from dying. eight organizations say as many as three million people, that is one third of haiti's population may be in need of help, injured or left homeless from the quake. and help is arriving from all over the world, food and water, heavy equipment, medical supplies. the airport in port-au-prince described as a humanitarian hub. president barack obama pledged $100 million today and he told the people of haiti they will not be forgotten. foreign rescue teams joined the search for people still trapped and possibly alive in the rubble, of tens of thousands of buildings. they're numbers are known and their time is running out. a short time ago, we spoke with laura blank of the

that happened on the national level but fundamentally changed america and essentially the foundations for the kind of society that could elect somebody like barack obama, president in 2008 and those are the voting rights act of 65, the civil rights act of '64 and immigration act of 65 and most people don't know the legislation's and they all happened under lyndon johnson and fundamentally transform who is american, who can vote, who can participate in the american's creation of a society and political system and so when i decided to do is put together an alternate tie line of defense from 65 to the present that are important from an arab american perspective so of course these are important to all americans like 9/11 and other things since the american memory is much shorter than for example the air of memory. those defense the 73 energy crisis or the 91 gulf war passed from american memory as a significant moments and then other defense like what happens in california 1985 are completely unknown to anybody outside arab america or progress of circles and had quite an impact on the com

to the united states of america throughout its history. haiti sent troops to fight with the american patriots who were fighting for their innocence against great britain and -- independence against great britain. in savannah, the battle of savannah, many haitians lost their lives which was one of the turning points of the columnists turning the tide against the british army. many valiant haitians died for our independence and actually during history when haitian military had a 12-year war with napoleon's army, haiti defeated the great napoleon's military and therefore france was in need of finances and france at that time controlled the louisiana territory. it was because of haiti's defeat of france and their need for cash that the united states was able to buy the louisiana territory, the same as the louisiana purchase, which therefore opened the west to the united states and louis and clark then went throughout the continent. so if you look at it, haiti has had a tremendous amount to do with our development as a nation and so we now owe a responsibility and i believe to our long-standing fr
